Roly Poly Pangolin
Roly Poly, very small, doesn't like new things at all. Meet Roly Poly Pangolin, a little pangolin who'd rather stick close to his mama instead of facing anything unfamiliar. Whether it's a line of ants, a friendly monkey, or a loud noise, Roly Poly runs the other way. Then he hears something that really scares him. So he does what all pangolins do when they're frightened: he rolls up into a tiny ball. But Roly Poly is surprised when he finally peeks out, because another ball is peeking back . . . it's a small pangolin just like him!



Attention all Llama Llama Red Pajama fans: There is another adorable Anna Dewdney book for you! Fans of Llama Llama will instantly fall in love with Roly Poly Pangolin. This little Roly Poly reminded me so much of my beloved Llama.

You will notice instantly that Roly Poly Pangolin rhymes much the same was as the Llama Llama stories do. There is a phrase or two that is repeated throughout the book, which makes it a hit for younger readers. Also like the little llama, there is a lesson to be learned here. Roly Poly is scared of new things, which almost cost him the chance to meet a new friend. All young readers can relate to--and learn from-- Roly Poly.
